Thanks for your comments, but we're curious why...Read More
My Orthopedic Surgeon was pushing neck fusion and I just wasn't ready for that and wanted a 2nd opinion to see if I had overlapping issues. What a world of difference & a refreshing change even after my first appointment. Great personality, fun to work with even when in a lot of pain. She has a lot of energy and really has a passion for wanting to help her patients. This is all from one session with her. Looking forward to where she can take me to shed this shoulder & neck pain.
